Gluten-Free Firecracker Burger BurgerFit Friday
On Friday’s, BurgerFit CEO Alane Boyd gets creative with BurgerFit burgers, Koops’ Mustard, and SunGarden Sprouts! Alane uses ingredients from her home to create this delicious Homemade Paleo BBQ Sauce recipe with Spicy Brown Koops’ Mustard and SunGarden Sunflower Sprouts mix!
The Firecracker burger packs sweet heat
“The best part is, your guests won’t even know that they’re eating a vegetable, or any picky kids that maybe don’t like orange food, they won’t even realize that sweet potatoes are in this!”-Alane
If you don’t have any broccoli & clover sprouts, some of the SunGarden sprouts that I think would be great on this burger are:

Get the recipe
- Preheat oven on 425 degrees.
- Cut sweet potatoes into ½ in chunks and place on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
- Place in oven and roast for 20 minutes. When the timer is up, check sweet potatoes and if they are not cooked the way through, continue cooking until they are.
- While potatoes are cooking, place ground meat in bowl with salt and Firecracker Hot Sauce. Wait to mix until sweet potatoes are added so that you don't overwork the ground meat.
- Let cool for a few minutes, enough to be able to handle them without burning yourself.
- Measure 1 cup of sweet potatoes and mash with a fork. Add them to the bowl with ground meat and mix ingredients together. Save extra sweet potatoes to serve as a side dish or throw into other meals.
- Patty out your burgers.
- Cook on skillet, in oven, or on grill
- Serve with SunGarden Broccoli and Clover Sprout Blend on top along with your favorite condiments!
- If you have spice sensitive people that will be enjoying the meal with you, you can add less hot sauce to the burger and save some for putting on top.
- You can mellow out the heat in the burger by adding cheese on top.
- Add chopped greens, such as kale or spinach, to the burger recipe for even more nutrients!
- Don't have any sweet potatoes but still want to make this burger? Replace the sweet potatoes with carrots, beets, or radishes for an equally delicious Firecracker BurgerFit burger!
- Create your own BurgerFit Deconstructed recipe by putting these in a tortilla for taco night.

BurgerFit and SunGarden met through mutual connections in the same town where BurgerFit is headquartered. Both companies immediately connected through helping people eating healthier. Sprouts are a perfect, simple addition to any mal and we love how well they go with BurgerFit.
